I would like to personally thank the wonderful person (people) who invented shorts, tank tops, and flip flops.
I owe you my life.
So other than sweating my booty off every.single.day we have been up to our usual summer shenanigans. On July 4th we had a block party where everyone pulled their grills out to the front and cooked up dinner and watched fireworks. It was fun. Especially with this man at the grill.
Cutest butt ever! Ha!
Keith also tried to take my picture as the fireworks were going but he was unsuccessful. Damn slow shutter speed. We are such camera dunces.
The next morning after July 4th, Bella and I took our normal morning walk to the park. Only this time there was something else at the park to accommodate the clean up from the July 4th celebrations the day before:
Now here is something you should know about Bella. She hates trash cans. And not like hates but like haaaaaaaaaates trash cans. Since we rescued her when she was about 5 months old we don’t know exactly what happened in her past to make her so afraid. I actually try not to think about it. Anyway usually she sees the normal blue trash cans on weekly trash day in the neighborhood. But that trashcan above sent her into near cardiac arrest.
She was refusing to walk in front of it on the walking trail. I pretty much forced her to walk by it. I am a bad mama but Bella faced her fear!
She is such a baby. Even though she is quite large.
Keith and I joke all the time that she had reverse body dismorphia. She thinks she weighs about 10 pounds and when she sees her reflection she barks and goes crazy wondering who that big ole dog is staring back her. As also evidenced by the fact that she likes to sit in our laps and sleep in our bed.
But she is impossible not to love.
So that is us. Yay. Aren’t we fantastic? So thrilling I tell you! 🙂
Enjoy your Friday and I hope you have a wonderful weekend! We have a FUN one planned. Can’t wait to share it on Monday!
